In this series, film scholar Terry Meehan presents five Ukrainian films that celebrate Ukraine’s unique identity and culture from Ukraine’s culturally significant poetic cinema movement.

In 2025, one year after the end of the war with Russia, Sergiy, a retired soldier with PTSD, tries to navigate life in war-torn eastern Ukraine. He struggles until he meets Katya, who works as a humanitarian activist at a volunteer organization exhuming and identifying the war’s casualties. Ukrainian with English subtitles.
